Streets of Desire

‘Streets of desire’ will be the launch exhibition of the new Jump Ship Rat contemporary arts centre. The exhibition and live art programme will draw and explore parallels between the different social, political and economic situations of one of South America’s most infamous and complex nations, Colombia, and those of the Western world.
This exhibition presents new work by 5 leading Colombian artists and a range of satellite works that are reactive to specific elements of street life where the familiar becomes unmapped and unknown territory becomes acutely recognisable.

‘Streets of desire’ is the meeting of minds, experiences and narratives by Jose Alejandro Restrepo, Jaime Avila, Rodrigo Facundo, Wilson Diaz, Juan Pablo Echiverri, El Vicio, Gala Navas Palacio, Jacques Chauchat, Caf, Megan Foster and Mr Ben.
